Rudis Rodriguez Professor Scala English 101 11/15/2012 Soldier’s Home Many of us have gone through some form of withdrawal. Whether it be from an unpleasant event(s) or memories, we usually just want to avoid whatever it is. Ernest Hemingway’s Soldier’s Home is a story about a young Soldier who returns to Oklahoma from World War I as a different person and has to deal with the post traumatic stress caused by an experience he had during the war. A central idea of Soldier’s Home is “Heart break”. This idea is very well supported when Harold Krebs sits on his porch and say negative comments on all of the girls walking by.
Abree Agosto The Dehumanization in Night by Elie Wiesel On page 37, as Elie Wiesel describes what happened to him and his father upon arrival at Birkenau, Wiesel asserts: " within a few seconds, we had ceased to be men". In his book night there are many examples of the dehumanization of the Jews while they were in these concentration camps. In the book Wiesel uses a lot of similes and metaphors. The dehumanization of the Jews also served well for the guard because it gave them no reason to fight. When Wiesel arrives at the first camp (Birkenau) he states that “within a few seconds, we had ceased to be men”.
It is important to use the correct approach with a client because you need the client to fully engage in what you are saying. This is because if you are using the wrong approach they may find it difficult to concentrate. For example, the permissive approach uses a lot of imagery. If you have a client who is more suited to the Authoritarian approach they may struggle to embrace the imagery and therefore would not be able to engage fully with the
His unwavering passion toward his work forces Frankenstein to become physically unhealthy appearing emaciated to those he crosses. Nonetheless, after the monster project failed, his family and friends including Henry Clerval, were there to help rejuvenate Frankenstein. Jewish heritage speaks of this very same characteristic of obsession with regard to various Torah scholars over the course of the generations of yesteryear. One particular leader that comes to mind is the Alter of Novardok, Rav Yosef Yoisel Horowitz. He was known to learn the Talmud and its commentaries deep into the night without minimal breaks of concentration for sleeping and eating.
In every chapter prior to Chapter 16, Levi depicts everyday life in the Lager, and he describes in great detail how he managed to survive through means like the safety acquired from his work assignment, friendships with Lorenzo and Alberto, etc. The Nazis’ primary goal was to destroy and exterminate the Jews. From Levi’s descriptive account, one gains a better understanding of the Nazi policy of Jewish dehumanization. The excruciating circumstances required the prisoners to adapt to life in Auschwitz, in order for survival. But like I said earlier, Levi was more ashamed over the fact that he was too focused on survival and realized that they lost his humanity along the way.

Ben Zietlow Dr. Schroeder United States History Since 1945 November 21, 2011 “The Way to Peace: The Vision of Henry Agard Wallace” During the 1930s and 1940s, many people in the United States government organized for war. However, some strove for peace and the continuation of the reforms which began during the New Deal. One such man was Henry Agard Wallace, Vice President under Roosevelt from 1941 to 1945, and Secretary of Commerce until his resignation in 1946. In these key positions, Wallace was a direct witness to the momentous and often confusing events of those years. From 1942 to 1946, he kept a diary of his activities, encounters, and thoughts.
Some of these barriers are quite hard to overcome. When we go through a barrier we may need help and there is lots of help around. If you are struggling with a barrier please tell someone who can help and will help. When in a partnership we can come across many barriers that we may have to deal with ourselves or even help someone else with their barriers. We may have to deal with many barriers and unfortunately we may not be able to overcome some of them.
Claudia Munoz Professor Lisa Smith English 115 March 13, 2012 “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” Tadeusz Borowski’s essay “This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen” is an emotional story that shows how a man breaks under adversity, and how this man deals with the horrors and chaos during the holocaust. The story is openly filled with sarcasm and confusion, the author’s intention is to keep the reader off-balance and agitated about the events that the characters must endure in order to survive. The way the author presents himself and manifests his feelings is important in achieving that sense of unsteadiness and tension that ultimately will aid the reader understand and react to the story. Borowski presents himself in two main ways throughout his essay: The first, as a sarcastic but detached narrator; and the second, as the prisoner attempting to survive. The author narrates the story from a first-person point of view, keeping a distant attitude although slightly touched by the horrors he describes.
“The Birthmark” is told in a strong, subjective voice that draws attention to the narrator and makes him a key player in the story. At nearly every moment, we know what the narrator is thinking and how he views the characters’ behavior. It is clear from the beginning that the narrator dislikes Aylmer and his quest to eliminate the birthmark and that he sympathizes with Georgiana. The narrator might be characterized as a chatty, intelligent friend sharing a particularly juicy piece of gossip. At several points in the story, he all but addresses us directly, imploring us, for example, to notice how bad Aylmer looks in comparison even to an animal like Aminadab.
